Arsenal line up shock move for final piece of attacking jigsaw

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 20:10 Dec 5th 2016

Arsenal took West Ham to the cleaners at the weekend, securing a 5-1 victory that both moved them up to second in the table and increased the Hammers’ relegation fears.

Now it seems that Arsene Wenger wants to inflict further damage on his side’s London rivals, with reports in The Sun suggesting that he is preparing a January move for Dimitri Payet.

DIMITRI PAYET

The 29-year-old may not have hit the heights of his debut Premier League campaign this time around, but he has still managed to weigh in with six assists.

In total, the French international has delivered ten top-flight goals and 17 assists during his time in England, despite not playing for a title-chasing club:

These numbers actually stack up pretty well against those put up by Mesut Özil during the same period, with the Arsenal playmaker only making a direct contribution to four more goals.

Alexis Sanchez’s conversion to a striker means that there is a vacancy on the left of the Gunners’ attacking unit and this is arguably the position from which Payet can do most damage.
